Hindi Saaho Day 1: Prabhas is no less than any big Bollywood star

On its first day, Saaho struggled with negative talk all around but that doesn't mean the film succumbed to pressure at the box office. The openings are fantastic though not like Baahubali 2, and the Hindi version also posted a terrific total.

On its Day 1, Saaho made 24.40 crores 'nett' collection (we reported 29.6 cr gross already) from Bollywood circuits, thus becoming the best opener for Prabhas. Though the likes of Thugs Of Hindostan opened to 50+ crores nett at Bollywood box office and Salman Khan always hitting above 30 crores 'nett' mark whenever he comes up with masala movies, these figures registered by Prabhas without the support of star hero and a superior casting is truly historic.

The likes of Ranvir Singh touched only 19crore mark with his recent Gully Boy while some big stars like Salman Khan also opened to 19 crores nett with films like Tube light. But Prabhas gave a tough fight to those heroes, putting a point on the table that he is no less than any big Bollywood star.

If he plans every film of him very carefully, in next five years he will surely emerge as a dependable star at Bollywood box office as well.
